Indian priest, physicist and philosopher.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu
Life is security and daring,/ Life is protection and risk,/ Life is openness and closure,/ It is safety and adventure.
Pandikattu quotes
It [love] conquers nihilism and pessimism/Suicide and self-annihilation./ It conquers its own death. /It is the spark of fire that kindles life forever.
Pandikattu
Love is Human: Own it/ Love is Bodily: Feel it/ Love is Divine: Revere it/ Love is Surrender: Transcend it/ Love is Life: Be!




Pandikattu Kuruvilla quotes
To love implies that I respect you/ Even though I may not like you always./ Love means that I freely revere you/ And leave you free even not to respond to me.
Pandikattu Kuruvilla
To be alive is to feel the joy of being./ In spite of the sorrows and joys of life/ The primary joy is that of being./ That of my existence. / That I exist is the most fundamental experience is joy for me!/ I, who do not deserve to, really exist./ I, who need not, do exist!/ I, who may not, do exist.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu quotes
Humans are the between before and beyond. Ever elusive and ever tensional
Kuruvilla Pandikattu
To look straight into the eyes of my death/ My non-being/ To face myself as living and dying/ In the bare nakedness of my life and non-life.
Pandikattu Kuruvilla quotes
To discover meaning is somehow to see the relatedness with everything else,/ However vaguely it may be;./ To find meaning is to see the purpose of things,/ However hazily it may be.
Pandikattu
Death: frightening and inevitable./ It is necessary to give rise to better offspring./ It is necessary to give way to a better life-style/ It is necessary due to the law of nature.
Pandikattu Kuruvilla
You are a surprise for me./ Every moment./ You are unpredictable in your love./ You cannot be controlled by my love.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu
There is a subtle way of dominating you/ By always making you dependent on me./ Love sees through and liberates you/ To stand on your own feet.




Kuruvilla Pandikattu quotes
Death is only a step towards .../ In this celebration of love/ Death is a stepping stone/ Towards the fullness/ Towards which all of us/ Consciously and unconsciously long for.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu
By sharing it [love] grows/ By giving it up it nurtures/ By dying it deepens./ By being it becomes.
Pandikattu quotes
Science and religion form the two pillars of our civilization and they need each other for the survival of ourselves.
Pandikattu Kuruvilla
In your presence, dearly beloved,/ I do not need to make up!/ I do not need to adorn myself!/ I can just be myself!/ What a relief!
Pandikattu Kuruvilla quotes
So is the song of life being sung/ By us and by all the living beings/ A melodious and harmonious song,/ Where the singer loses her own self/ And absorbs in the wonderful harmony of the song!/ An almost ecstatic experience.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu
Love is the source of our hope/ Love is the basis of our vision/ Love is the goal of our progress/ Love is our world.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu quotes
Death has been the great leveler/ Of all honour, glory and name./ None can take anything with them/ To their tomb! Death! The sobering fact/ Of all our yearnings and longings!/ “What does it profit a man …”/ If he cannot take any of the things/ To his grave.
Kuruvilla Pandikattu
A parable is fascinating/ In its paradoxical invitation/ In the subversion of values/ In the unconditional acceptance of life/In its total affirmation of life/ Without ifs, buts and ...
Pandikattu Kuruvilla
Death stares at me/ Death pushes me forward/ Attracts me onwards/ And carries me on/ And that is my life!
